Innovative solutions backed by ethical practices
From OEKO-TEX® certified fibres to eco dyes we set out to create a product that is not only backed by science but also ethical standards and practices.
STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®
Ensures that our garments are free of harmful chemicals and safe for human use.
Our dyes are made from natural materials and are less harmful to the environment than traditional synthetic dyes
We use packaging materials and design our garments to minimize the environmental impact throughout its life cycle.
Our products do not use any animal products or byproducts, and are suitable for vegans to use.
All our garments are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. This means that every thread, fibre and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms. The test is conducted by our independent OEKO-TEX® partner institutes on the basis of our extensive OEKO-TEX® criteria catalog.
In the test they take into account numerous regulated and non-regulated substances, which may be harmful to human health. In many cases the limit values for the STANDARD 100 go beyond national and international requirements.
To achieve our goals of eco activewear we use a low-impact dye. Our dyes have been classified as STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (an international certification process) as eco-friendly.
Our dyes do not contain toxic chemicals or mordants (which fix the dye to the fabric), require less rinsing and have a high absorption rate in the fabric (~70%).
Why is sustainable activewear important?
Sustainable activewear is important for a number of reasons.
First, the production of clothing, including activewear, can have a significant environmental impact. The fashion industry is a major contributor to pollution, water usage, and greenhouse gas emissions, and the production of synthetic materials such as polyester, which is commonly used in activewear, can be particularly resource-intensive. By choosing sustainable activewear, consumers can help to reduce the environmental impact of their clothing choices and support more sustainable business practices.
Second, sustainable activewear can also be more comfortable and durable than traditional activewear. Many sustainable activewear brands use high-quality, natural materials that are breathable and moisture-wicking, which can help to keep the wearer comfortable during physical activity. In addition, sustainable activewear is often made with attention to detail and using durable construction techniques, which can make it last longer and reduce the need for constant replacements.
Finally, sustainable activewear can be an important way to support ethical and socially responsible business practices. Many sustainable activewear brands prioritize transparency and social responsibility in their operations, and may use their profits to support environmental or social causes. By supporting these brands, consumers can help to promote a more sustainable and ethical fashion industry.
What material is activewear made out of?
Activewear is often made from synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon, and spandex, which are chosen for their moisture-wicking, stretchy, and quick-drying properties. These materials are popular for activewear because they are lightweight, comfortable, and can help to keep the wearer cool and dry during physical activity.
At Celle Skin we also use our cellulite reducing technology, woven within our activewear.
In addition, many activewear brands also use blends of these synthetic materials with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, which can add additional benefits such as breathability and warmth.
Sustainable activewear brands may also use eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester, or bamboo, which have a lower environmental impact than traditional synthetic materials.
Is sustainable activewear higher quality?
Sustainable activewear can often be of a higher quality. Quality can depend on a variety of factors, such as the materials used, the construction of the clothing, and the attention to detail in the design.
Some sustainable activewear brands may prioritize using high-quality, durable materials and construction techniques in order to create long-lasting clothing that will hold up to the wear and tear of physical activity. Other sustainable activewear brands may focus more on using eco-friendly materials, even if they are not as durable, in order to minimize their environmental impact.
